Required Bus Safety Training for Students
All Kasson-Mantorville students receive bus safety training and must pass a test in order to continue riding any regular, sport or field trip bus. The State of Minnesota has reaffirmed that bus riding is not a right but rather a privilege. The state requires that students must show competency in riding a bus by the third week of school. The specific competencies include:
The above will be taught in the classroom and on the buses the first week of school. Students failing the competencies will be assigned to special classes by the school transportation safety director. If students cannot demonstrate proficiency by the third week of school, they will be dropped from all regular, extra-curricular and field trips and an evening class with parents and student together will be scheduled for those who wish to access the bus riding privilege.
